Social media

​You can contact our customer services team using our Facebook and Twitter​ accounts. We respond to queries from both accounts between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday (except bank holidays and public holidays).
If you contact us during these times we will reply as soon as possible, usually within an hour.
We will always do our best to help, but sometimes we may be unable to formally act upon some enquiries using these channels. If that's the case, we will respond with a link to the relevant web page or provide contact details for the most appropriate department.
We hope that all discussions on our social networks will be good mannered. All abusive material or messages of a personal nature will be removed.

Our use of social media 
We are aiming to be a social media friendly organisation. Enquiries received via or corporate Facebook and Twitter accounts are taken just as seriously as if they were a phone call, email, letter, web chat or face to face appointment. More information about what this means can be found in our sociable organisation principles in the Documents section on this page. 
We have developed social media guidance for our staff which is helping us to be more social media friendly. We are happy for other organisations to use it too if they wish. It is available in the Documents section on this page - approved social media guidance.
